Is there a cross reference available to map file names to modules you should use to process them

I keep struggling trying to work out what modules I need to use for some of the more common log files found in linux.

Example: I have yum.log what module should I use to map this to (in short set var.paths for that module to point to these logs.

It would be really nice to know:

  1. Where to find a cross reference for files to their respective filebeat module to use to process it.
  2. Have Elastic generate a cross reference that is either available on their site or as part of the next release documentation for filebeat.
  3. If someone has actually made a cross reference would they mind sharing it.

Note: Some like user.log are a bit ambiguous should these be processed by the auditd or system module or perhaps some other module.

As always thanks for spending the time to respond to my questions.
